today. you won't need that. that hour-by-hour chance of rain from sunup to sundown is zero. no showers expected, but again, it is a little chilly. good morning to you in cleveland. 32 is our current temperature, but the wind is out of the northwest at about 12 miles per hour sustained. so it's going to feel just a little colder than it actually is. it feels like the mid-20s in cleveland. it's actually in the mid-20s in akron this morning. not much of a breeze there. do substantially lighter than they have been the last several days. you know, over the weekend it was super windy, still a little blustery yesterday. today those winds start to relax, but it is still cold. 7:00, most of us are stuck in the upper 20s and lower 30s, and by midday we should hit about 38, 41 this afternoon. that will be your forecast high for the day. that will happen at about 3:00. partly sunny skies is your
6:19 am
our maps today or tonight. tomorrow rain is looking like a good bet. now, if you'll be traveling in the morning around this area, you're not going to have to worry about any rain. i think almost up through midday we should be just fine, but by about 11:00, 12:00, that's when those precipitation chances start increasing, and i do think that as the rain moves in by late morning and early tomorrow afternoon, even a little sleet or snow could mix in. i don't expect any accumulations, any accumulating snow or anything like that. as temperatures warm into the afternoon to about 41, we'll change over to all rain, and that rain is going to hang around through wednesday night. if the system kind of lags a little bit, moves a little slower, we could even see some showers on thanksgiving morning. so prepare to deep fry that turkey outside in the rain. i think most of it should be out of here by the afternoon, so if you want to play a little
6:20 am
groundmy be wet on thursday, i think we should be mostly dry by the afternoon. yet another system in the books for friday. that brings us light rain during the day, so my black friday shoppers and i am right there with you because i'm always looking for a good deal, we're going to be shopping in some rain on friday. it should be pretty light, and then the weekend, well, we'll start that off with a little light rain, too. sunday, though, laura, looks great. >> laura: heads up, too. today is a better day of travel than tomorrow. sam is talking about the weather and talking about later on in the day tomorrow, 11:00 tomorrow. tomorrow the worst time to be on the road for traveling is 3:00 in the afternoon. so if you can get out before the rain and before the heavy traffic, that's going to be your best bet tomorrow. if you get out on the road today, things are free and clear out there. we have clear roads for you

cold this morning, 29 at 7:00, and 38 midday, and then an afternoon high today of 41. just a little bit warmer than yesterday, but still running below average, so any after school practices if the kids have one more day of school left probably going to need to bundle up for that. for tonight, mostly cloudy and cold. mid-20s overnight. i think it will be even colder tomorrow morning for some of you than it is right now. we really won't warm 39 tomorrow afternoon, and the temperature will come up a little bit tomorrow night, and then we'll get a little warmer finally for thursday. a high of 47 on thanksgiving day. the same system that brings us rain and a wintery mix tomorrow, that kind of hangs around through thursday morning, so up through about 10:00 in the morning, might see a few showers on thanksgiving. then another system coming in for friday.
